Operation Northwoods

On March 12 1962 a letter from the Joint Chiefs of Staff was sent to the Secretary of Defense with a strategy to create an event that would lead to military intervention in Cuba.  Their plan was to shoot down a plane, stage an attack on our own military base, and sink a military ship.  Check out page 8 with the full list of things they wanted to do just so Americans would buy into an invasion of Cuba.  Now if they did this in the 60’s, do you think they would do it again?
